Plane strain analysis

Hello,

Could you please help me in doing a plane strain analysis in NX?

What are the steps?

Many thanks

Re: Plane strain analysis

The exact steps would be solver and solution dependent. The question is to vague to provide a detailed answer.

 

Recent versions of NX Nastran have dedicated elements for Plane Stress (CPLSTS*) and Plane Strain (CPLSTN*) analysis:

The definition of these is supported in Simcenter Pre/Post. The appropriate 2D Solid option must be set on the FEM to specify the plane that these elements will be defined on
